Last week, when I went to Adult Day Care Center, I got confused that with senior center. Thanks to Candace last week for explaining me the difference. Moreover, this week I got an opportunity to differentiate them based on their structure and services. I got an overview of senior center, their services and funding sources. Among all of yesterday’s class I loved the tour of senior center. I was in that senior center many times before for my GA project. We used to collect data for the GA project from their Library. However, I never got a chance to visit all the rooms. I was surprised by looking at their activities room; they have a lot of resources to use. It was great to see the wide range of opportunities in health, education, recreation, volunteer …show more content…

But being at the part of the AARP foundation as a research intern, I feel AARP staffs, members, volunteers, service providers, vendors, insurance companies (who are using the AARP brand), and some federal organizations’ staffs (who are involved with AARP to conduct surveys driving federal rules and regulations) are the stakeholders of AARP. AARP works for older adults from community level to federal level. More briefly, some examples of community stakeholders of AARP are: Elected officials and key agency staffs, such as town or urban planner, the public work administrator, also assorted transportation representative, Metropolitan Planning Organization representatives, local voluntary non-profit service organizations and members of healthcare and fitness community. AARP engages all their stakeholders at the community level to find and implement livable community strategies. It works at the office level to make plans based on the stakeholders work evidence and follow up those with the mission statement as well as provide services. And with community works and surveys they make impact on national policies. From my experience working at the AARP they know how to involve their stakeholders and how to manage that with mission of an

    The issues addressed were how to process and who to direct patients to when certain issues came up. Leads are responsible for a monthly clerk audit. Leads go into the system and double check that the information was entered correctly and if there are a concerning number of issues. This is addressed in the meetings because the audits are like production and they strive to get the numbers up. Mr. Barlage really pushes that the veterans are top priority and says quite a bit of the same information that was stressed in my classes this semester.…

    Finally, we reached an understanding that we will implement the new unit flow for one month and we will continuously monitor check-in, pre-procedure, procedure, post-procedure, and check-out times for individual and total waiting times. We sought confirmation and asked the senior nurses if they felt comfortable trying out the new unit flow for a month.

At the end of the day we communicated to management our start date for the new unit flow plan. Applying the A-E-I-O-U conflict management model, proved to be beneficial to resolve our unit dilemma and helped senior and new nurses alike to…

    Many people have different ideas of what a community is and what makes a community successful, but, overall, the themes of unity and cooperation come to mind. The writer Rousseau displayed his thoughts about community in his book, The main idea he discussed was that people must surrender their freedom in order to gain the benefits of functioning collectively as a group. I decided to test this theory by observing some of the staff members of a nursing home who are attending a meeting to come up with specific solutions for each residents’ weight loss problem. Every week the same staff members, which include the director of nursing, two unit managers, the dietary manager, and the dietician, meet to review the weights of all patients and, more…
